I forgot to mention that Cuttlebug came out with great embossing folders for Christmas. I was able to get a hold of some while on vacation in the States. Here is one folder that I have used so far, it's called Christmas Lace.
For this I used:
Paper: Close to My Heart cardstock
DP: Basic Grey
Ink: Stickles - Crystal
Accessories: Cuttlebug Embossin Folder - Christmas Lace
Close to My Heart cardstock is white core so I was able to come up with this image using the cuttlebug. After running the cardstock through the bug I sanded the embossed parts and used stickles to add sparkle on some parts of the tree.
